Two of the 19 leaders on the TIME list were Tinubu and Vice President Joe Biden of the United States.
The magazine stated this about Tinubu: “Winning an election in Africa’s most populous nation is no easy feat. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the newly elected president of Nigeria, has, however, had nearly 20 years to plan. His supporters refer to him as Jagaban, or “leader of the warriors,” and this March marked the first time he entered a presidential race. His campaign’s tagline, “It’s my turn,” made reference to his longtime position as a political power broker. After fighting against military rule, Tinubu assisted in the restoration of democracy in the nation in 1999. He later held the office of Lagos governor for two terms in a row.

After battling for democracy in the nation in 1999, Tinubu was elected governor of Lagos for two terms in a row.
“But Tinubu’s win with the ruling All Progressives Congress Party came in a fraught election and by a slim margin over Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi. It was the first time Nigerian voters contended with a third-party candidate, and many discontented young Nigerians yearning for change pinned their hopes on Obi. Marred by allegations of intimidation and vote rigging, the outcome of the ballot is being challenged in court.”
